Charles Sofa

B&B Italia


A leading piece in contemporary lifestyle, it became a reference model in the world of design. The light image accentuated by the essential design of the die-cast aluminium feet make Charles into a sofa with a decidedly contemporary look, a product of great formal elegance that goes well beyond the current times and fashions. The spatial concept behind the project by Antonio Citterio is innovative: a system that can be used to create new compositions – two or three seat sofas, sofas with a chaise longue addition and a corner sofa.
